MP for Mid Worcestershire Nigel Huddleston, paid a visit to Dorset House Nursing Home on Friday 20th October, demonstrating his commitment to local communities and the wellbeing of the older generation.
Dorset House, known for its exceptional care and dedication to the elderly, was honoured to host Mr. Huddleston, who spent valuable time engaging with residents and staff, further strengthening the bond between local government and community institutions.
The visit began with a warm welcome as Nigel Huddleston was greeted by the residents, many of whom were eager to share their stories and experiences. Mr. Huddleston took the time to listen attentively, offering a compassionate ear. Later he and his Constituency Assistant Helen McMillan savoured afternoon tea arranged by the home’s kitchen team, expressing their admiration for the delightful spread including homemade cakes.
The Dorset House staff team were also delighted to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the care sector with their local MP.
Home Manager, Karen Johnson, remarked, “We are grateful for Mr. Huddleston’s visit. His presence reaffirms our residents’ sense of belonging and highlights the importance of community bonds.. One resident has a farming background, both had an in-depth conversation about agriculture. The residents also mentioned how pleasant both Nigel and his colleagues were. It was a privilege for us to welcome Nigel to Dorset House and would like to thank him for visiting”.
